I'm getting tired of seeing my lovely setup ruined by this big old black case next to my unit. So I'm thinking of turning one of my half used shelves into a pc case. I have a m8 that's a carpenter of 15+ years and he said its doable, are there any things I have to aware of other than, making sure the wood is treated, good ventilation, condensation prevention. I have been googling building a case from scratch and it just seems to be the same Thule of thumb as building a pc, just without the boundaries, is that the "case" or is there anything I should be weary of?

Might want to think of putting an filter over the fan slots. Just so that alot of dust doesn't trap in the tower.

I m measuring out the mounting screws so I can use brass spacers on it. In that case it's on I will post pics when it's done. Oh I'm also putting a vented perspex hard drive shelf in the center. Should be good
